Description: The Floibanen funicular in Bergen is one of Norway's best-known...
The Floibanen funicular in Bergen is one of Norway's best-known attractions. Floibanen can be found in the heart of Bergen, 150 m from Fisketorget - the fish market - and Bryggen wharf, and it takes just 10 minutes to walk to the lower station from where the cruise ships dock along Bryggen. The journey up to Floyen (320 m above sea level) takes 5-8 minutes. The journey is an experience in itself, and at the top you can enjoy fantastic views over Bergen. Check out the view right now from our webcam of Bergen seen from Floyen. There are endless opportunities for walks on Floyen, and you will also find a cafe, restaurant and children's playground. The funicular runs daily all year round from early morning to late evening (check our departure times).

The funicular up Mount Floyen provides amazing views of Bergen. It's a fun experience to get in the glass car and ride up to the top. Unfortunately I arrived at the same time as a large tour group, so I got crowded in one of the cars and had obstructed views on the way up; however, it certainly did not... More

Thank you for sharing your experience after your visit. During high season, it might be crowdie. But we really take an effort of help those who already have a ticket to pass the queue for the ticket Office, normally that helps a lot. All the best from Mount Fløyen. More

A lovely scenic 7 minute ride up 320 meters. You are greeted by a magnificent panoramic view of the city. We took a leisurely walk and were amazed at the sights along the way. Spring is definitely coming and we were able to see greenery and flowers.

Floibanen Funicular is a must-do in Bergen. The views from the top of Mt. Floi were fantastic, we went on a perfectly clear and sunny day. We went fairly early in the day (before 11am) and didn't have much of a line for the funicular. Spend some time taking in the view from the top observation areas. We opted to... More

Pretty steep walk up to the top, very nice roads with excellent views. The 2014-2015 Winter storm left some damage, but it is already being cleaned up right now.

Free with a Bergen card, and a Must-Do! The views are fantastic, and the ride up and down is an experience not to miss. Try to get into the first carriage for the best views, but all the carriages have great views thanks to the glass roof.

There are seven mountains around Bergen, but Fløyen has the best panorama. Take the funicular up and walk down if you have the time - saves some money, and the walking trail offers a more interesting view on the way down anyway. If you don't have a sledge, you can buy a sheet sledge (30kr, if memory serves) from the... More

For the price of a funicular ticket (ca NOK 85)--or about 20 minutes up if you are walking--the great outdoors opens for you in Bergen! Once on top, you can admire views of the city laid out at your feet, have a cup of coffee at the overpriced tourist cafe, and call it a day. But, if have a couple... More
